I'll try and make this as least complicating as possible! I had a few different choices of where I could put this but I chose here so I hope I can get an answer, ANY answer!
I am on the birth control pill called Sprintec! I have three weeks of blue pills and one week of white pills. Earlier I was in my third week of blue pills when I accidentally didn't see that I had one blue pill left so I took a white pill and then the next day I spotted the blue pill and took it! Well my boyfriend calls me up and invites me to a swimming party for his little cousin's birthday and I was due for my period in the next few days once I started the white pills [most likely around the 3rd pill] so I called up my gynecologist's office and asked if I could completely skip my period by skipping my white pills and she told me that it was worth a shot but that I could have some breakthrough bleeding! Well I got off the phone and threw the birth control with the remaining white pills in the trash and started my new fresh pack! Guess what? I got a full fledged period for 5 days straight. After that I had figured my period had stopped but here I am on day 14 and am still bleeding. It's not much at all but I have to wear a pantyliner and I can fill one or two up in a day's time and usually every time I use the restroom blood comes out [sorry for that extra tidbit].
Did I just make a big mistake and now I'm paying for it or could this be something more complex?
Do not worry about the bleeding. Even though its is a buzz kill lol your body is not use to skipping a period...so your schedule for now is all off whack. Anytime you try to miss a period by doubling up on the blue pills your are at risk of having spotting or a heavy flow...right now you are probably spotting. You will be fine...but it may take sometime for your bleeding to get back to normal. Its totally normal to bleed and spot.
